There’s more fun and pranks from the comic host this week as US actor and singer-songwriter Josh Groban hands over his phone to play Send to All – will celebrity fan Oprah Winfrey be picking up?

The host also heads to Newport in Wales to rouse an unsuspecting member of the public from their bed for The Midnight Gameshow, and introduces Alisa and Daniel as the first couple to have all their Christmases come at once when they appear as this week’s Unexpected Stars.
